Hello, everyone! I’m Alex Roberts. You may have heard me on my podcast, Backstory
, or seen me hopping around excitedly at just about every gaming convention in North America. I’m an explorer and reporter in the wide world of role-playing games and I can’t wait to bring my enthusiasm and experience to Pelgrane Press!
My own backstory starts with an adolescence of basement-dwelling dice-rolling in the tiny town of Vankleek Hill, Ontario. I thought gaming was behind me until my early twenties, when some new friends introduced me to the then-new explosion of independent game publishing. The fire was re-kindled and I continue to seek out the innovative, experimental, and otherwise interesting corners of gaming to this day. I’ve been exploring and promoting live-action games with a passion since catching the larp bug a few years ago, but tabletop will always have a special place in my heart. These days I’m writing, designing, podcasting and more out of Canada’s chilly capital city, and traveling wherever gaming takes me.
I like pretty dresses, sparkling wine, and playing a foul bastard in-game. Every party needs one!
Cat and I will be working closely together for the next few months as I get up to speed on all the exciting projects Pelgrane has in the works – and hopefully hatching a few new plans as well! I’ll be doing a little bit of everything here at Pelgrane, which is just the way I like it. Expect to hear from me here, on See Page XX, as well as in special announcements and in your friendly customer service emails. Oh, and hopefully at your next convention! I love helping GMs rock their players’ worlds and I look forward to meeting as many of you in person as I can.
‘Til then, fare well!
